Read the paragraphs again and answer the questions about each sentence.

A sleepover

My parents weren’t very strict, I mean I played outside a lot, and I stayed at my friends’ houses all the time. It was great! But the first time I stayed at Tracy’s house, I was really anxious. She had a big dog, and it barked at me all the time.

Why was she anxious?

a. she had a sleepover with her friend.

b. her parents were strict.

c. *the dog barked a lot.*

A day at work

I remember my first day at this job, yeah. I started about a year ago, and it was my first office job. I was nervous because my boss was really strict, but my coworkers were really friendly. I guess it wasn’t so bad.

Why was he nervous?

a. his coworkers were friendly.

b. *his boss was strict.*

c. the job was bad.

A day at school

OK, I never liked school, but high school was the worst. I actually changed schools a few times, so on my first day at high school, I was frightened. I didn’t know anyone, and the kids were really big and mean.

Why was she frightened?

a. *the kids were mean.*

b. the school was big.

c. she had a lot of friend.

A special date

Of course, I remember. I was 15 or 16, and she was my crush. We went to the movies together. I really liked her, but I was really shy, and I didn’t say a lot. I didn’t see her again, I guess I wasn’t her type.

Why was he shy?

a. *he liked the girl a lot.*

b. they went to the movie theater.

c. he was 15 or 16.
